Nasarawa State House of Assembly Speaker, Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, has disclosed that “Nigerians need President Buhari more than ever before, considering his development strides in almost all the sectors of economy.”
He said Nigerians would not forget in a hurry what he termed as “the damage caused by PDP during its 16 years of power.”
The Speaker made this disclosure on Thursday, while addressing newsmen in Umaisha in Toto local government area of the state, saying, “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not be an alternative to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party in 2019,” after visiting six electoral wards of his constituency.
According to Balarabe-Abdullahi, “APC is in Umaisha/Ugya;” and therefore, urged Nigerians to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and all other APC candidates during the upcoming general elections.
He also called on the electorate to vote massively for President Buhari, Abdullahi Sule, the Nasarawa State APC governorship candidate, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu for Senate and Mr Abdulmumuni for House of Representatives in 2019.
He stated that, “When we came in 2015 seeking for your votes, I told you my programmes, and today, I am here to say, Thank You.”
The Speaker, who expressed optimism that the 2019 general elections would be peaceful, called on the people to vote for other APC candidates during the 2019 general elections.
He, however, urged politicians to play the game by the rules in the interest of peace and national development. But he challenged the opposition political parties that occupied the seat before in the state to show the people what they achieved during their tenure.
The Speaker called on his constituents to remain united and speak with one voice by supporting APC at all levels.
Conscience Triumph gathers that the six electoral wards visited by the Speaker include: Umaisha, Ugya, Shege, Dausu, Kenyehu and Katapha.
